    Racism | 10

    On Episode 10 of China Rising, we’ll discuss the dramatic rise in anti-Asian racism in Canada during the COVID-19 pandemic. Fuelled by misinformation about the virus and political rhetoric on both sides of the border, Canada saw a spike in reported hate crimes. Last year, anti-Asian hate crimes in Vancouver soared by more than 700%. We’ll hear from Canadians who’ve been targeted, including prominent figures in Canada’s political, arts and journalism communities, to shine a spotlight on the Canada’s hidden hate.

    Meng and the Two Michaels | 9

    On Episode 9 of China Rising, we’ll update the story that has cast a shadow over Canada-China relations for nearly three years. September 5th, 2021 marks 1,000 days since Canadians Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor were detained in China. Their arrests are widely seen as retaliation for the arrest of Chinese telecom executive Meng Wanzhou in Vancouver at the request of the United States. As Meng’s extradition hearing finally draws to a close and the ‘Two Michaels’ prepare to learn their fate, we’ll hear from the families and friends who are fighting desperately to bring them home.

    Taiwan | 8

    On Episode 8 of China Rising, we'll explore the growing tensions between China and Taiwan, which are fueling fears of a possible Chinese military invasion and an armed conflict that risks spilling far beyond the island's borders. Taiwan is widely considered by security analysts to be a flashpoint for a confrontation between China and the United States. Beijing considers Taiwan to be a breakaway province, which it has long wanted to bring under its rule. But public opinion polls show the vast majority of people in Taiwan consider themselves to be Taiwanese – not Chinese; They’re proud of their liberal democracy and do not want to become part of China. We’ll hear from Canadians living in Taiwan who are witnessing Beijing’s growing military aggression towards the island first-hand. And we’ll examine claims from some U.S. military leaders who predict China will launch a military invasion within the next six years. If that happens, how will Canada, the United States and their allies respond?

    On Episode 7 of China Rising, we'll take a trip to Hong Kong, where pro-democracy protesters are fighting back against a government crackdown. Since Beijing introduced a new national security law for Hong Kong in July 2020, more than 100 pro-democracy activists, lawmakers and journalists have been arrested. Hong Kong is home to 300,000 Canadians -- the largest Canuck community in any city outside of Canada. We'll meet the Canadian expats on the frontlines of the fight for Hong Kong.

    On Episode 6 of China Rising, we'll hear from Canadians who say they and their families have faced threats, harassment, intimidation and surveillance in Canada for speaking out against the Chinese Communist Party.

Love your reporting on China and your Russia Rising was very helpful for me to understand our current global crisis with the end of the Cold War... that morphed into Cyber War. Thanks for your voice and the clarity you bring to so much purposely foggy politics and geopolitical situations that don't get captured very well on the day to day media.

Compelling Information

Very interesting podcast. The government of China continues to embarrass itself throughout the world by tactics exposed in this podcast and national news outlets in North America and Europe. Taking hostages under the guise of spying shows how small minded and vengeful this government is. It is obvious they are fearful of their own citizens and others and will lie to protect their power. We see through this. Shame on you, China!

5 stars!

Mind blowing and very sad to hear that, while we live in Canada, China is able to control the Chinese nationals overseas.
I would love to hear more!
